Cat not eating.

Our cat Mystic(16) being treated for hyperthroidism was on Tapazole (1 pill twice a day) for 16 days. Her appetite decreased and she starting vomiting. After two days of not eating she was given fluids subcutaneously. She still has not eaten. It has been four days (two days since fluids).I think it is largely due to the medicine (reaction). Awaiting blood tests results..., What can we do to entice her to eat?

Poor girl.
Have you tried canned/wet food or tuna?? Maybed something like that will entice her to eat.Ask your vet what he/she thinks.

Absolutely get your vets opinion on how to get her to eat. If she really refuses to eat he/she (the vet) might have to intervene to get her her nutrients.
